Johnson the Poet: The Poetic Career of Samuel Johnson
University of Delaware Press, 1999 - 335 páginas
Comments on Johnson's versatile career as satirist, playwright, moralist, neo-Latinist, elegise, prologuist and writer of drawing-room verse. This reconsideration calls attention to the qualities that so captivated Johnson's 18th-century readers and argues both the historical importance and continuing critical significance of Johnson's poetry.
